Playing the Star game
OK, so OT Shon Coleman finished his season in November as a four-star prospect. Rivals.com's experts have bumped him to a five-star guy. By all accounts, he played well at the U.S. Army All-American game, so maybe that's why he's "better" now.
Another OT commitment, Ed Christian, today lost one of his stars. He's now a three-star prospect. His season ended in November as well. Christian played in the North/South All-Star game earlier this month. Maybe he was terrible?
Word inside Rivals.com is that LB commitment Jake Holland, he of Pelham fame, has been identified as a "riser" by experts inside the organization and will be bumped from his current perch (three star) to a higher, four-star perch in the coming days.
His season ended in November as well. Maybe he improved dramatically during the Christmas holiday?
EDIT: Rivals.com also is planning to bump DE commit Kenneth Carter to a four-star prospect in the coming days. The organization is making the changes on a position-by-position basis.
The whole deal looks odd to me.
